    This is a beautifully tender poem, Allie, recalling one of life's fond memories wonderfully well. What I liked about it was your common sense approach, vividly recalling finding a similar birthday card from your father to your mother and noting the probability that this card too, like the earlier one, would be found by your children or grandchildren. Your intense focus on one of the little facets of humanity is what makes this such a fascinating write. Carl. (Report) Reply

    Birthdays and Death-days,
    days in-between,
    seizing of the moments
    that have been.
